Margaret Ruth Woods

Country & Town will be holding a Celebration of Life for Ruth Woods on Thursday, March 16 at 1:00 p.m. in the Worship Center. The service will also be livestreamed for those unable to attend.

Margaret Ruth Woods passed away peacefully on January 15th, 2023. She was preceded in death by her first husband, Dolan Edward Henry, her second husband, Harry Woods Jr., her sister, Janie Mae Buchanan, and her brothers, William Reed Hill and Edward Brian Hill. She is survived by her sister, Nancy Jo Leigh, her daughters, Elizabeth Ruth Henry and Bonnie Jean Dixon, and her son, Bruce Hill Henry. She will also be missed by seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Ruth was born on December 20th, 1925, in Cookeville, Tennessee, and met her high school sweetheart, Dolan, at a local church. Following the end of WWII, Dolan and Ruth married and moved to Ohio to start a family, eventually giving birth to Beth, Bonnie, and Bruce. Ruth and Dolan worked as a team to fulfill their calling of developing new churches around Dayton, the Pittsburgh area, and throughout Central Pennsylvania. Following Dolan’s death in 1970, Ruth completed an Associate’s Degree in Psychology at Harrisburg Area Community College while continuing to serve her church community at Country & Town. She was active in Women’s Missionary Union, weekly church visitation, and taught an adult women’s Sunday school class. In 1993, Ruth married Harry Woods, a longtime member of North Park Baptist Church, which was founded by Dolan and Ruth’s ministry. Despite a visual handicap in her later years, Ruth supported her family in Camp Hill for nearly 25 years, devoting loving care to her brother, Eddie, and husband, Harry.
